Utah: Kayenta and Coyote Gulch Art Village in Photos

Kayenta

 

After a morning of shopping for some last minute Hawaii farm gear in St. George, Utah, we stopped at Kayenta, a small artist community in the southernmost tip of the Beehive State. Kayenta is surrounded by protected land, and definitely has that middle-of-nowhere feel going for it. The focus of the housing community is moderate land use and sustainability, so you see very minimal landscaping, if any — just red rocks, blue skies, cacti and other native desert plants. It’s pretty cool.

In the center of the Kayenta community is the Coyote Gulch Art Village. This little enclave of art galleries, artists’ studios, gift shops, and even a restaurant, is like a desert oasis. After exploring the galleries and shops, we had a quick snack of hummus, pita, and veggies at Xetava Gardens Cafe. If you’re ever in the area, we definitely recommend you check it out.

    • Nostalgia is weird! After only 2 months away we’re missing where you are!

      Maybe a great meetup is in our future? Can’t you hear Lake Tahoe calling your name?!
